With two of our regional campuses just announcing they're closed, maaaaaaybe there's a chance our main campus (where I work) will also close!? Naaaah - not likely. This forecast honestly doesn't seem all THAT bad. Well - except for the chances of 2in of snow an hour later this morning - that could be cool! ;-)
A WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 PM EST THIS AFTERNOON.
SNOW WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE DAY. THERE ARE INDICATIONS THAT A BAND OF HEAVY SNOW WILL DEVELOP FOR SEVERAL HOURS AND MAY BEGIN AS EARLY AS THE MORNING COMMUTE. THIS BAND OF SNOW LOOKS TO SET UP NEAR OR NORTH OF A MARION TO MEDINA LINE. SNOWFALL RATES OF UP TO 2 INCHES PER HOUR WILL BE POSSIBLE IN THIS BAND.
SOUTH OF THE HEAVIER BAND OF SNOW THERE WILL BE A CHANCE OF A WINTRY MIX OF PRECIPITATION. FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET ARE EXPECTED AT TIMES THROUGH THE MORNING BEFORE CHANGING BACK TO ALL SNOW FOR THE AFTERNOON. SOME LIGHT ICING WILL BE POSSIBLE.
MOST LOCATIONS SHOULD SEE ADDITIONAL SNOW AMOUNTS OF AT LEAST 2 TO 4 INCHES THROUGH THE DAY WITH UP TO 8 INCHES POSSIBLE WHERE THE HEAVY BAND DEVELOPS. THIS WOULD LEAD TO A STORM TOTAL ACCUMULATION OF 6 TO 10 INCHES. HOWEVER AMOUNTS SHOULD BE A BIT LOWER WHERE THE MIXED PRECIPITATION OCCURS.
SOME BLOWING AND DRIFTING OF SNOW WILL BE POSSIBLE WEDNESDAY EVENING AS WINDS INCREASE OUT OF THE NORTHWEST.
A WINTER STORM WARNING IS ISSUED WHEN SEVERE WINTER WEATHER IS EXPECTED. HEAVY SNOW AND/OR ICE WILL CAUSE HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS. IF POSSIBLE AVOID TRAVELING IN THE WARNING AREA... OR USE EXTREME CAUTION IF TRAVEL IS UNAVOIDABLE.
